Accessing the New York Times Online

With your WCCLS library card, you can get unlimited online access to the New York Times. Here’s how to do it!

Outside the library

WCCLS cardholders outside the library can get 72 hour passes to nytimes.com for use on any device using the browser. These passes will also work for the NYT app on smartphones, but not for the NYT app on tablets.

  1. Visit this page and click on the Redeem button.
     
  2. Log in with a NYT account (create an account here), or log in with your Facebook or Google account, and access unlimited articles on any device you’re logged in with, for 72 hours.

In the library

  1. Visit nytimes.com from the browser on any device connected to the library’s wifi, or on a wired computer in the library. In-library access will not work with the NYT app.

  2. Log in with a NYT account (create an account here), or log in with your Facebook or Google account, and access unlimited articles on nytimes.com.

Will I get emails from the New York Times?

Yes, by creating a nytimes.com account, you will get emails about purchasing an individual subscription to the NYT. However, you can unsubscribe to these promotional emails, and the NYT will honor your request.

Can I save items and access them across devices?

Yes, when you are logged in with your NYT account, you can save an article for later. This list of items saved for later will be accessible on any device, when you log in to your NYT account.

Does this subscription include the crossword?

No, the NYT crossword is not available with the library’s subscription. Other puzzles from the NYT are available though, including the mini crossword.

Once my 72 hour pass runs out, can I get another one?

Yes. Just follow the same steps that you did to get the first one.

I have more questions. How do I get help?

Please contact your local library for assistance.
